I only have a dedicated pc to spare which is my own gaming com but i heard that i need something beefier than that which will come later when i move to maxwell.
Specs: i7-4770k @ 4.2ghz
Ref GTX 780 stock GPU
Seasonic XP1000W PSU
2133MHZ 8GB ram Gskill
Is it advisable to mine using this com and how much could i get theoretically against electrical consumption?

There are good PTS miners for Nvidia. Overkill PSU you have there for 1 card btw, get another 780
Also, atm youll get about 1 pts every 2 days (maybe 1,5 PTS). Thats about around 5-7 dollards a day at current value.
How much your power cost is depends on how much you pay for electricity ofc.
Also factor in the lowered lifetime of your gpu etc... its not much.
I started out on 2 780s last week mainly to get a "investment free" way of trying out trading. Turns out its fun as hell!
Try to set up a PTS-miner at ypool using arCUDAminer 1.0c.
"arCUDAminer_cm3.exe -o http://ypool.net:8082
-u WORKERNAME -p WORKERPW -m avx
Just give it a shot
